Attend a unique screening of a documentary about Locked-In Syndrome, 14 June in Caulfield

Blazing a New Trail is an incredibly moving documentary from Japan, here in Melbourne for a unique screening in Caulfield.  It is about the extraordinary friendship between two colleagues from a Japanese school for children with disability. 

When Mr Toshiya Miyata  experienced a massive cerebral haemorrhage, his doctor said that he would never regain consciousness and his body will remain paralyzed for life.  However, Mr Miyata's colleague Ms. Katsuko Yamamoto never gave up hope.  For many years, she has worked tirelessly not only to help rehabilitate him, but also to build a worldwide circle of support around him through an online blog called Heart of Miracle.

This is your chance to watch the movie about their story and also hear a lecture by Ms Yamamoto, who says that their wish is " to make a big world which celebrate a life."

The movie is being screened by volunteers on a not-for-profit basis and any proceeds will be used towards event and travel costs.
